          Missouri Bill Aims To Stop Use of Welfare Benefits 

                        On Gambling And Alcohol

                                    



         A Missouri House bill aims to restrict the use of cash welfare
                     benefits at casinos and liquor stores.
        
           The bill’s sponsor, Republican Rep. Chrissy Sommer of St.
         Charles, says her measure is intended to comply with a federal
        law passed last year. That law requires states to adopt policies
           preventing welfare money from being spent on gambling and
                                    alcohol.
        
         The Missouri measure directs the Department of Social Services
            to prevent electronic benefit cards that contain welfare
             benefits from being used at casinos or liquor stores. 
        
             It would not stop welfare recipients from making cash
            withdrawals and then spending money at those locations.
        
         Missouri has until 2014 to comply with the federal law or risk
           losing 5 percent of its federal funding for the Temporary
                     Assistance for Needy Families program.
